Illini Stories: The Deterding Family

Posted Aug 21 2012 7:14pm

The Deterding family supports organ donation and you should too.

The Deterding family bleeds orange and blue. Robyn has spent more than 25 years at the University of Illinois and is currently Director of Campus Recreation in Urbana-Champaign. Her daughter, Hannah, recently graduated with a BSW and represented the university on the National Runner-Up Women’s Volleyball Team. The Deterding family also supports organ and tissue donation. In 2000, they lost Teddy – their beloved son and brother – in a tragic accident. Through organ and tissue donation, he was able to help others. They now support donation as a way to honor Teddy and remember his legacy of life. “Organ donation is the ultimate gift,” says Robyn, “You may be able to help a family have more time with their loved one.”

Join others within the University of Illinois community. You can help save lives by REAFFIRMING or REGISTERING your decision to be an organ and tissue donor at www.IlliniforHope.org !
